Thank you Desmond and Oliver. The problem is fixed. The directories did
not have execute permissions set....That's what i get for using the -R
flag with chmod.

Most likely you do not have execute permissions set on one of the
directories in the path to that file. All the directories must have
execute (search) permission and the file itself must have read
permission set for the user under whose id the postmaster is running.
And of course, the file must be on the same machine that the postmaster
is running on.
If it is not possible to satisfy those conditions, you can use \copy in
psql instead; the input file is opened by the frontend instead of the
